BROOKSVILLE - A Tampa woman was arrested by Hernando County sheriff's deputies on Saturday after they received a call for assistance regarding two theft suspects last seen in Citrus County traveling south toward Brooksville.

Citrus County Sheriff's Office dispatched that a man with a white helmet and a woman with blonde hair and a black sweatshirt were seen leaving near a theft scene on a green Kawasaki motorcycle.

A deputy saw a green motorcycle at Citrus Way and Fort Dade Avenue, which had a West Virginia license plate.

The deputy made contact with Amanda Katheryn Patrick, 24, and asked Patrick if he could search her backpack. The report does not state whether Patrick gave the deputy consent to do so.

The male with Patrick on the motorcycle was not named in the arrest report.

The deputy wrote inside Patrick's backpack was a Crown Royal bag with two syringes, a burnt metal spoon with methamphetamine residue, a jewelry style bag with methamphetamine residue, and a cut straw with residue.

The deputy also wrote that inside the bag was a small pill container with three Tizanidine Hydrochloride pills.

Jail records show Patrick was arrested for the incident on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a new legend drug without a prescription, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Her total bond amount was $11,000, which she posted Sunday. Hillsborough County Jail records show Patrick was arrested in July on one charge of knowingly driving with a suspended license, in April on one charge of petit theft less than $100, and third degree grand theft in February.
